It was last night that CNN were hosting a town hall type of debate between Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz. The main topic of conversation was that of Obamacare and the future of the program. Sander’s main point was that the government should provide healthcare as a right while Cruz talked about the severe consequences of this approach.
Cruz received a tough question from one woman who asked:
I have multiple sclerosis but could not afford insurance – without the treatment or medications i need, i had problems with walking, with my speech, and my vision. When the affordable care act was passed I moved from our home state of Texas because they refused to expand Medicaid to Maryland and within 2 weeks I started receiving treatments through Medicaid and am now well enough to work as a substitute teacher.
Senator Cruz, can you promise me that you and the Republican leaders in congress will have – actually have a replacement plan in place for people like me who depend on their Medicaid? In other words, I like my coverage, can I keep it?
The controversy surrounds this question because you can see the header of the email she is reading off, the email is from a Gmail account as you can see from the top of the paper. The subject line reads “Your Question,” as the two photographs below show.
People are suggesting CNN fed her this question. What are your thoughts on this?
